1 Name: Activity Materials: Question worksheet (pages 2-3) 16 Fact Cards (pages 4-8) Tape, Scissors, Classroom Preparation: Print the fact cards on card stock or brightly-colored paper and cut them out. Make copies of the question sheet. Each student will need his/her own copy. Hide the fact cards around your classroom where kids will be able to find them. You can stick them on your classroom window, on the sides of student desks, on chairs, on the chalkboard, or wherever you like. Activity: Students receive a copy of the question worksheet. They have to search the room and find all of the fact cards to answer the questions. Management tips: After they have completed the question sheet, you can go over the answers together with the class. You may want to make this a silent activity so students don't share answers with each other. You can have the kids work alone or with a partner. Don't be afraid to hide the facts in tough places. Kids think it's more fun when they have to search around a little. Examples of good hiding spots might include: the back of the classroom door laying flat on the bookshelf on the side of your computer monitor Have a plan for students who finish early. You may want to have an assignment for them to complete when they're done, or you may have them help other students find fact cards.
